i'm just going to go. >>> this morning on "meet the press," the pressure is on as mitt romney stumbles. the president is widening his lead, six weeks before the election. where is the debate headed? >>> he said he can't change washington from the inside. he can only change it from outside. well we're going to give him that chance in november, he's going outside. >> but it's rom any who spent perhaps his worst week of the campaign. on the defensive. after the release of his 2011 tax return and now this now-infamous recording from a may fundraiser. >> the 24% are with him. the government has the responsibility to care for them. >> a debate this morning about the 47%. taxes and government dependence. with two top surrogates for the candidate. democratic governor of massachusetts, duvall patrick and republican senator from new hampshire, kelly ayok. and then our political roundtable on the romney campaign under fire from romney conservatives what is the turn-around plan. are romney's troubles overstated? and what to look for as the candidates prepare for the debate. with a senior
romney as he tries to steady his campaign. joining us for a debate of their own, democratic governor of massachusetts, devalue patrick and kelly welcome to both of you. >> thanks, david. >> a lot to get to. let's start with the issue of taxes. mitt romney's tax returns showing in 2011 he paid 14%. he didn't have a job. this was interest income. governor, should this end the debate or should there be more? >> i understand people's interest and curiosity about the tax returns. his dad said tax returns for presidential candidate should be produced way back many years and i think it produced 20 years worth of tax returns when he was considered vice president. the more important issue is what is it he plans to do with my taxes and yours and everybody els. he has a tax plan where he's talking $5 trillion in tax cut, adding to the deficit, no way to pay for it and no idea about what the impact is. >> the question of more returns and what they are holding, you don't think it's appropriate -- >> i think it's a fair question. the bigger question is what is it he plans to do with everybody else
comment by mitt romney was getting a lot of publicity, his tax returns wut o there. let me play for you what was said when i asked what do you make of the polls. >> they're overpolling democrats to push up the president's numbers. >> is this what the romney camp really believes, matt? is it correct? >> you know, think ear going to grasp at any straw that they can. it's a problem of what happens when you nominate an electability candidate in the primary season, right? he looks nice. you can take him home to mom. . and then you have to transfer to a general election. you have to try to avoid saying anything to make a case for yourself and those are two different things. >> the question becomes what do you do. one of the things they talked about, they said it in "the new york times," let's get mitt romney and paul ryan out on the road together because ryan seems to loosen him up a little bit. but then, you know, some people are making fun of what happened in ohio yesterday. let me play that clip for you. >> wow. that's quite a guy, isn't it? paul ryan. isn't that something? >> ryan
on our own two feet is exactly what governor romney is conveying. >> do you think president obama has not said to a group of donors, look, there are certain segments in the electorate that are not going to vote for me? why not see it as political analysis? >> i don't think that's what the president said or ever said. what he's done is govern for all of the people. the president has, you know, he's advanced policy that is are not popular with his base. he did them because he thought they were important for the future of this country. it's the leadership we need. >> let's talk about the issues, the 47% get to. the question of government dependence as you referenced, here are snapshots nationally that raised eyebrows and governor romney talked about. you talk about food stamps. 47 million americans on food stamps up from four years ago. here is a broader picture from the wall street journal over time, if you go back to the early '80s and look at the trajectory, 49% receiving some kind of government benefit. is government dependent at a place where it's out of control? >> well, david, i t
. the headline "go large, mitt." listen to this line. it makes you think how far ahead romney would be if he were actually running a campaign, but his unwillingness to go big, to go for the larger argument, is simply astonishing. and, mark, charles goes on to say what many conservatives have said over the past several weeks. he's behind and he continues to play small. >> he does, and he continues to have days that don't really amount to much. yesterday they had a sort of a veterans message and an economy message during events in virginia but they can't wait for just the debates. i think conservatives want to see not just big events in terms of big ideas but big events that grab the nation's attention. the romney campaign is frustrated because they say all the press asks them about is process but that's par for the course and true in every campaign i've ever covered, the press will talk about process particularly polls. mitt romney, conservatives are waiting for him to be big in events, big in message, big in personality. it seems like right now the campaign is waiting for him to do that in the de
romy romney campaign are saying horrible things about how bad the campaign's going behind the scenes. you know, talking about "the wall street journal" and the fact that laura ingram's had legitite conces anrush yo gnhe concerns. this is not an ideological campaign, it's not a conservative campaign. not conservatives because the conservatives that are leaders who understand what a mess this country's in and our party's in, they're with me. but let j s some of the screechers, whether it's on certain talk radio shows, people -- you know, they're blaming the polls. it's the pollsters' fault, right? just like walter mondale's people were blaming the polls ba in 1984 a day before the ti thy before reagan got 49 states. blaming everything else but where the blame lies. and that is mitt romney and his horrible campaign. peggy noonan was right. you know, these idiots blast people like peggy noonan, these idiots bla people like "the wall street journal." uringram.ots blast peoe le why aren't you a loyal republican? well, i think a loyal republican says the house is on fire. and me's running o

: that was governor romney on the campaign trail in ohio yesterday making his case for a new american economic agenda. 12 hours later, we got our weekly unemployment numbers. the labor department now saying 26,000 fewer americans filed for jobless benefits last week than the week before. that brings the total number to 359,000. but exerts say typically, the number must consistently drop below 375,000, to indicate that highering is strong enough to actually lower our unemployment rate. a big new study meantime provide little hope for the employment picture going forward. a survey of a group of leading ceo's shows they expect to cut jobs in the coming months rather than add them. fox business network's robert gray is live in new york. robert? >> megyn, that's right. it is the business roundtable. this is their third quarter outlook. they are much less bullish if you will on the economy and on hiring than they were just six months ago. as of right now, only about 29% of these ceo's see adding jobs. meanwhile 34% of them say they see headcount declining over the next six months. the reason here is uncert
